NBA D-League suspends Iowa teammates Kalin Lucas 3 games, Jarnell Stokes 3 games for fight on bench

NEW YORK (AP) - The NBA Development League has suspended Iowa Energy guard Kalin Lucas for three games and teammate Jarnell Stokes for two games for fighting each other on the bench.

The league announced the suspensions Thursday.

The 6-foot-9 Stokes and 6-1 Lucas were ejected for fighting with 2:29 left in the third quarter of Iowa's 124-120 win over Rio Grande on Tuesday night. A broadcast of the game showed pushing and shoving near the bench for Iowa, an affiliate of the Memphis Grizzlies, during a timeout.

Lucas, a former star at Michigan State, played one game this season for the Grizzlies. Stokes, a rookie out of Tennessee, has split time between Iowa and Memphis.

The suspensions were to start Thursday night against Fort Wayne.
